On Sunday 17th April Emmanuel Mutai broke the London Marathon course record by coming home in a time of 2:04:40. This was less than a minute short of Haile Gebrselassie’s current world record of 2:03:59, but 4min 41secs short of a much talked about barrier in the world of marathon running – the magic sub 2 hour marathon. A hot topic in the running world; runners, commentators, and even some statisticians, are asking if/when will this barrier be breached?
